Shoreline is a Space Between…
From the land, it’s where we look out and dream of a journey to come. From the water, it’s where we look to for direction and the promise of steady ground.
Where can we go to gather…to set a course…to prepare for a new journey or to resupply for the one already underway?
GET AWAY & GROW TOGETHER
Shoreline provides an overnight camp experience for campers and simultaneously provides hands-on training in faith formation for adult volunteers with children and youth.
Shoreline camp is a chance for your group to get away and grow together for a week…to focus on faith…to learn more about who and how God created us to be and live.
Go Beyond Fun – Put Faith into Practice
You want your students to have fun. You also want them to grow in their faith. Too often experiences are either one or the other – or awkwardly alternate between the two.
We know how to have fun; our passion is forming faith in the process. We put 90+ years of experience into creating an environment where every moment – whether in a worship service or out on the water, around the dinner table or 30 feet off the ground – is about practicing faith in Christian community. Fun for fun’s sake is fleeting; practice makes faith permanent.
While we had hoped to restart Shoreline Camps for Summer 2022, we’ve made the difficult decision to extend its suspension of operations while our family of ministries continues to recover from pandemic impacts. For questions about Summer 2023, contact Shoreline’s director, Stephen Ward.
TRAINING FOR ADULT LEADERS
Shoreline offers adults much more than a chaperone experience. Volunteers from each church (1 per 10 campers) receive leadership coaching before and throughout the week designed to help discover gifts, reflect on calling, and practice servant leadership – powerful training that benefits all involved. Each church will provide one Safe Sanctuaries-trained adult volunteer per 10 campers.
